That is a Red Zebra or a Red Zebra hybrid. "Sunflower Hongi" is a silly name, doesn't seem to have any Hongi traits far as I can tell.

Could be a small infection. You could try the treatment, just realize that such broad treatment may harm you tank's cycle and may not help the fish.

Glad you said that noki, because I was not seeing hongi either.

It's difficult to tell from the pics what that growth might be. If it's subdermal, there's really nothing you can do about it; if it's an ectoparasite, I'd suggest that you treat the tank with SeaChem ParaGuard, which works really well for these sorts of things, has no significant contraindications, and will not harm your biofilter. Good luck.
